What error do you get? Can you also try port 587?
I'm having the same issue... Can't connect using openssl:

openssl s_client -connect smtp.gmail.com:465
connect: Connection timed out

openssl s_client -connect smtp.gmail.com:587
connect: Connection timed out

I'm using CSF.
@igorprado: I believe this was resolved on IRC :)
Any update in this issue!?
I have the same issue I try with 587 port to but no success...

Any idea?
@Aday: Please file a support ticket if you can't connect to port 587 on remote servers.

This is google specifically blocking you for “less secure use”:


Though it could also be Digital Ocean also blocking. Contact DigitalOcean for support just to verify.
